Our Family


Even though the Burpo family has been on a wild ride for the past few years, they still live their life as "normally" as possible. Todd loves fixing things, grilling in the back yard, speaking to audiences all over the world, and a solid afternoon nap. He is still busy writing books, and he is still deeply invested in the community of Crossroads Wesleyan Church. Sonja finds her joy in loving and teaching kids of all ages, raising her own kids and managing their busy schedule, and being the backbone of Heaven is for Real Ministries. 

As the kids have gotten older, they have gotten much busier and a little harder to keep track of. Cassie, 21, is entering her junior year of college and working hard on an accounting degree. Colton, 18, is leaving the house and headed to college in the fall of 2017. And Colby, 13, is keeping mom and dad very busy with all of his activities. 

The Burpo Family is deeply committed to their faith in Jesus, and their experiences through the Heaven is for Real journey have only solidified their love of the Lord and their love of the local church. They are passionate about working tirelessly to keep Heaven is for Real Ministries alive and well through the creation of new books and resources as well as through speaking to audiences all over the world.
